Well, I finally found out about LiveUSB making. I found out from live.pirillo.com. Link is Here. It does wipe out your USB when doing so. But I have not yet read it all. But now I have to plan on getting another USB or (maybe) SD card for it. So, that's what.

So, even if the computer could have infects (But protected from getting any more.), it won't matter (No prob?)?

it might be mentioned in your bios? to say it a bit clearer the motherboard brand and type is what you need..

unless infects means a sledgehammer or a 40 ton truck it will not affect linux.
(alays be carefull tough when installing any servers etc...) a firewall is not even needed

Yeah, I will have to see about that. How do I the motherboard brand and type? Do I take of the cover of the tower to see it or is it on a manual or in the System properties?
